2nd Place at South Haven

I found out on Friday that my piece "Emerge I" received a second place award in the South Haven Center for the Arts 4th Regional Juried Show.  The show is up through October and it is chock full of good art (if I do say so myself...)  So it was double compliment to be selected for this prize considering how good of a show it is! This encourages me to make more!  "Emerge I" is also up for a permanent adoption....
 Emerge I-copper and porcelain with wooden substructure. Made in 2012.

Third Place finish at Crooked Tree Art Center and other awards....

I found out recently that I received a third place for my piece "Time" that I entered into the Crooked Tree Art Centers 33rd Annual Juried Fine Art Exhibit.  YAY!  Here is the piece.... Made from found metal, altered pine siding, and handmade porcelain components.  It is about 55"tall and 33" wide, 4" deep and 50 lbs.

I also forgot to post that I received an award this past summer for a piece I entered into the Grand Rapids Festival of the Regional Juried Exhibition.  This piece (Growth XI) received the LaFontsee Galleries 3-D Award and was also sold.  Very encouraging and exciting for me!
